I looked at getting a G1 Devastator but he's way over what I'm willing to spend.

but I did buy the Pit -- you get more plastic crack for you money. Plus, TF's would always have another Supreme/Ultimate class vehicle next time. I would rather support the Pit to show Hasbro that there's a market for large 'Joe playsets.
As for the EZ collection Devastator, who knows? There might eventually be a repaint of him in G1 colors.

The Pitt. The movie Devastator doesn't look right to me.

That Devastator whatever the hell looks like something they tore off of Skeletor's Snake Mountain. Doesn't look cool or fun unless you're 4 or 5, and I think even a kid that young would get bored with it fast hah.

The Pitt of course! (But I'm biased, being a Joe fan/collector, and I dislike the TF movie designs.)
That's assuming you're not talking about tracking down an original Devastator, that is - in which case I would go with the TF.
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!

Go on youtube and watch the many video reviews of the ROTF Devestator. It is kind of small and not at all in scale with other Transformers - the $60 electronic movie Duke is like 2X as tall! The head doesn't look at all like the movie character. And it is extremely expensive for what you get - especially when they have re-released the aerialbots at Target for less than half the price and it looks pretty good. My heart is always going to be G1 and neither are these are that.
The PITT is huge, ungainly and not in the movie as a vehicle (but is in the video game, apparently). It makes no sense as a vehicle, but seems to be a kind of cool playset - just not necessarily worth $100, in my opinion. It has cardboard parts. The biggest selling point is an exclusive figure - and that only matters if you either a completest, or you just love Dennis Quaid as Hawk.
Just think really hard, go on youtube and look at videos of both, and determine if either merit $100 you have earned.
At some point, I was excited about both of these too, but now I will never purchase them - even at a much lower price point. They just aren't that great.

Ok, I didnt know we were talking about the ROTF Devastator. If I had my choice between what was supposed to be a base on wheels and a giant blender, I would go with the base. That's a no brainer.
